House Democrats are already in court in order to get access to documents and witnesses as part of their investigation into potential wrongdoing on the part of President Donald Trump, and may also have to take the administration to court over a whistleblower report on the president, Rep. Hakeem Jeffries said Friday. 

"We need to get to the bottom of it on behalf of the American people," the New York Democrat told CNN's "New Day." "It's a very troubling allegation. There's the possibility that the president may have used or threatened to use taxpayer dollars in order to accomplish a political objective."

Two and a half weeks before the complaint was filed, stating that Trump had made promises to a foreign leader, the president had spoken with newly elected Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, the Post noted.

Meanwhile, Jeffries, a member of the House Judiciary Committee, said the group will meet Friday to decide whether former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski should be held in contempt for his behavior during an open hearing before the committee earlier this week. 

"He behaved like a thug," said Jeffries. "No one should be surprised by that. But the central reason for his presence was essentially to confirm one of the more troubling allegations within the Mueller report which is that President Trump told Lewandowski to deliver a message to Jeff Sessions in order to curtail the criminal investigation into the Trump campaign...he confirmed that allegation. And that was the most important thing that came out of the hearing."
